Celebrating: Donny Hathaway

on February 25, 2022 - 4:23pm

By the time Donny Hathaway signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records in 1969, a deep-rooted musical foundation was already set in-place.

At a young age, Aretha advocated for Black liberation through action. Her early days touring alongside Harry Belafonte for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. saw her using more than just her voice to amplify a message of political and social change.
